A World Apart

I can see you haunting me still
But we're a world apart
Time's passing still tugs at me
Cannot be still just sit and be

I can see you seeking me still
But we're a world apart
I could never just let myself go
I could never just drift, live so slow

I can see you wondering still
But we're a world apart
You're self contained, all in there
I need others, others to share

I can see you hurting still
But we're a world apart
I had to just up and go then
We couldn't work things out
We're a world apart
